  • They can escape from mason jar by unscrewing it.

  • I'm glad someone else loves octopuses as much as I do 😃

  • If John Oliver gets killed by an octopus, did he get murdered or did he get occupied...I kill me...

  • John really can sell anything, can't he.

  • No. But now I think - a lot more than before - that you’ve gone mad.

  • How can you call Octopus's Garden a terrible Beatles song? That song is great. Shame on you John.

  • Thank you. I really enjoyed this.

  • ALIENS AMONGST US! We don't have to search the heavens for intelligent life. They are octopuses. And they will rise up and kill us all. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

  • Wait. I never knew they were this cool

  • what did i just watch

  • If you really like octopuses there's always hentai

  • I just wish they would live longer, too intelligent to die so young.

  • Do you think John Oliver knows about blue ringed octopus or the mantis shrimp yet?

  • Hi Mr Oliver. When will you talk about “First Amendment Auditors”?

  • when he said “octopuses arent loved by the internet” *Sir, have you seen the hentai community?*

  • I once ate an octopus and it immediately enacted its revenge by making me throw up.

  • This is a ploy video to avert from John wishing people die horrible deaths because humans are awful animals.

  • Damn this episode was unexpectedly fire

  • Guys, I think John Oliver is an Octopus...

  • Who could thumb down this!!!????

  • John is actually just making this to be in the octopuses good books when they inevitably become the earths dominant species and enslave humans

  • The ocean is a scary place, beautiful, but scary.

  • Does the US run macro programs too? Why does it appear on the top every time you post a comment?

  • I came here to find interesting facts about octopus but all the screaming made it unpleasant to watch. You are a garbage, John Oliver.

  • It is impossible for me to appreciate octopuses more than I did before I started watching this.

  • Man among boys, John!!!

  • *We’re very lucky octopi can’t speak or breathe air.*

  • Hey John, the plural of octopus is octopodes. Greek root

  • Yeah, as an animal, we are pretty lame.

  • This is the energy I never knew I needed in my life. Shoutout to octopuses for being cool as shit.

  • I read that the Humboldt Squid can delay gratification-- researchers successfully worked with the squid to ignore a 1st round of regular food for far tastier treat. That puts it on the level of a 4-5 year-old human. Far out, these guys are cool.

  • "Octopuses are great." Pretty much says it all.

  • If the person filming on the beach turned out to be a person of color, then John Oliver would suddenly find them inspiring.

  • this segment was better than My Octopus Teacher.

  • I caught one in the beach and let it go exactly where i found it, the lad was very polite and intelligent, as he made eye contact.

  • I want him to do more of these animal reviews

  • FUCKING FINALLY!!!! SOMEONE ELSE TALKS ABOUT OCTOPUSES IN THE WAY THAT I DO!!!!

  • Entertaining and delicious

  • I loved that documentary too!

  • BAN the fishing and eating of octopodes!

  • I love Morgan Freeman, but I would watch the crap out of John Oliver doing Nature videos…

  • “Whatever massive company currently owns us” 😆

  • Best episode

  • Isn't the "furry turkey" a frogfish? or some other that moves around like walking on it's fins?

  • I have always loved octopuses. You didn't even get into their amazing escape artist antics or ability to totally fool stupid humans in aquariums by sneaking into other tanks to eat and then hiding the evidence and sneaking back. Point is, octopuses rule.

  • venturing into the trading world without the help of a proffesionl trader and expecting profit is like turing water into wine, you would need a miracle, thats why i trade with Mrs Katherine her skills set exceptional

    • @oliver liam FBI incoming

    • @Ishmael McCarthy you can communicate with Mrs. Katherine Anderson on TeIegram via Username@katherineofficialtrades

    • get me her contact please

    • The fact that I been able to withdrw my profits without any stress since I started tradin with Madam. Anderson has been the best part of working with her

    • @Imogen Short Glad to say I bought my first house from investment I made on trade with her. I know more is coming

  • One could get the feeling that you're only advocating green energy so we as a species don't bother to octupuses.

  • The colossal box empirically fool because polyester outstandingly shelter toward a apparatus. satisfying, burly dinner

  • I'm mad about cats but you have a point

  • "I'm worried that if people stop paying attention to me, I'll die." - John Oliver Johnnie Boy has finally become a real youtuber

  • Their intelligence is scary!

  • If the plural of octopus is octopedes, is the plural of pegasus still pegasi?

    • third language, sorry for any mistake).

  • Japan likes octopuses more than John ever could

  • All of you are already late, you should have embraced cthulu back in the 80s.

  • Better yet, I would have like to see the octopus crawl into that guy's mouth, and then 30 seconds later burst out of his chest.

  • In case anyone would like to further embrace John's passion for the noble octopus, there is a book called "Other Minds" by Peter Godfrey-Smith that is a fantastic look at octopuses and the nature of intelligence. It's really worth reading.

  • Can you do a video like this about vultures? Most of the vulture species in the world are threatened or endangered and they are really cute and important for the environment!

  • Mimic Octopuses are the real life Shang Tsung. They also steal the souls of their victims.

  • Please tell me the audience will be back when the show returns.

  • I thought he was going to drop the bomb that we are driving this species extinct. :) >:|

  • But what about the octopuses that live on land. Like the Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus! They are really cute and they live in trees.

  • John Oliver is trying to justify his tentacle porn fetish.

  • Another fun fact: Octopuses are completely color blind and can only see in black and white..... WTF

  • As someone who has had octopuses as a special interest for years, THANK YOU

  • The pural of octopus is octopi!

  • My suggestion for when the end of the season comes, on that last episode, blowing up the 2021 model.. make an Octopus pull the lever (or whatever is called - English is my third language, sorry for any mistake).

  • Octopuses are amazing. He didn't even get to some of the really weird shit about them. 🐙🐙

  • This is easily the best episode of the year so far!

  • I'm saddened that there was no mentioning of Paul the Octopus. For future reference, please put his name into wikipedia. He was the most famous Octopus, showing the quality of his brain by determining the faith of human beings.

  • Octopus > Bird. Simple Math people.

  • John Oliver, you are my favorite guy that says stuff on television. I appreciate you as a human being so much. Thank you for being you. I agree, octopuses are spectacular and I hope that they one day rule the world, the universe even!

  • Time for a vacation, John!

  • And he didn't even mention Octopus vs Shark!

  • The people who gave this a thumbs down are insane!!!! This is an outstanding video!!

  • I mean if you had to compare humans to any animal (including tiny insects) and if we are in the slightest smart we'd instantly realise that we are just a bunch of tubes with a huge ego about our 'opposing' thumbs. And that we're incredibly stupid too (proof of which is glaring back at us now in the form of piles of trash and baby humans!!!)

  • Octopuses are so amazing, I'm sure they can't be from this planet, but something that crashed here and just decided to go with it and stay here

  • Ending: Let Octopuses take over the internet! Not that long ago: Make sure you have Octopuses consent before you film them! Wait a minute...

  • I don't always agree with John, sometimes I spend entire videos yelling at my phone as though my rants will force my phone to intelligently find his personal cell number, call it, he'll answer and will be able to hear my complaints live and without censorship. In this case, however, I cannot disagree with a single point in this video and hope he does more in this vein.

  • Great, now I hate being a human and wanna be an octopuse 😑

  • i would never ever eat a octopus.it is unimaginable... Such a great creature, a majesty of the sea.. Thank you Oliver (and all the team) for this video!!!!

  • I really want John to do a segment on pigs. Their need for belly rubs seems greater than cats… So looooove this stealth bagpipe vid 😍

  • And he missed so much: cobalt-based blood, their brains, eyes and hearts are all wonderful. Visit octolab.tv/ and you will see more.

  • Pistol Shrimp Gun was used in Project Power by Jamie Foxx

  • Excuse me, but George Harrison's guitar solo on Octopuses Garden goes hard, and you know it

  • I have a strong feeling that if John Oliver had an American accent-- say, Arkansas, and he traveled around the (red parts of the) country telling people the necessary truth of things, that he would successfully combat, or even eliminate the rampant, willful, dangerous ignorance and conspiracy addiction currently permeating and ravaging the citizenry of this dying country.

  • My mind has been racing for nine minutes, trying to imagine what atrocities happened in the USA and how they relate to octopuses.

  • I wanna be an octopus in my next life. Tasting whatever I want without gaining any weight? Sign me up.

  • Since Gritty is Kavanaugh on your Supreme Court, have an Octopus be ACB.

  • What's with the hate about the man letting an Octopus into his mouth?^^

  • Let's not forget about the octopus who upon finding a bad shrimp in its feed then broke out of its tank wandered across the hall to toss said rancid shrimp at its handler in indignation before returning to the rest of its meal.

  • Think he has a Cthulhu Shrine?

  • I adore you SO _much,_ John Oliver! You're just _adorable!_ 🐙🖤

  • i do agree that octopuses are great & deserve more attention. however, how are we supposed to do that w/o getting their permission to observe/record?

  • Omg this is amazing....my favorite host talking about my favorite water animal. If only he mentioned the dumbo octopus combining my favorite land animal(the elephant).

  • 🍻 to Charles the octopus haha

  • Hi there internet! Gets me every time 🤣🤣

  • Octopuses are my favourite creature on this planet! So happy they are getting some mainstream attention/love because they deserve it

  • And this just got added to my favorites so I can inflict it on other people whenever they try to say that Octopodidae are NOT the coolest family ever.
